I bought a wireless usb mouse/keyboard combo. The brand is "Micro Innovations". The keyboard works fine in xbmc but the mouse doesn't work at all. I also have a wired usb mouse which i tried, and that works fine, but I really want to get the wireless one to work.

I know there's nothing wrong with the wireless mouse because it works fine when i run x-dsl (Damn Small Linux) on my xbox.

Are some mice just not compatible with media center? is there something I can do to make it work?

I could be very wrong about this but I don't think mice work with xbmc or many/if any other xbox apps. I have a wireless mouse for linux also and it works.

Edit: I guess I skiped this part: "I also have a wired usb mouse which i tried, and that works fine, but I really want to get the wireless one to work."

I will try mine in xbmc. Does it show a cursor?

I have a Gyration wireless Keyboard/Mouse combo and the mouse doesnt work either. I think that is just the way it is. I tried w/ other programs to but cant get the mouse to work. I can use a regual usb mouse on everything.

AFAIK only generic keyboard/mouse combos work. Nothing that could need any special driver. (and by special i mean anything else but generic)
